Default Google closes in on Digg

Google is on the verge of snapping up news aggregator Digg for a reported $200m as the search giant continues to bolster its news service.

Reports on TechCrunch claim that the acquisition is a couple of weeks from completion, although a third party such as Microsoft could still move in should the deal fall through.

Google and Digg have reportedly signed a letter of intent following an on/off negotiation process which continued despite Google's cooling on the acquisition

The service competes with other high profile community aggregators such as Slashdot and Reddit.

Digg doesn't really have any competition when it comes to pure traffic...
